I do have a penchant of picking up unusual products..I tend to first buy them and then figure out how out how to use them…It’s one of my failings but I cant curb my curiosity to try out such new stuff So it was only natural that the moment I saw this odd soap-like white and blue bar on a pretty decorated plate at the Lush store, I felt the need to grab it asap! And imagine my surprise when they said it was a Deo!! Now I’ve heard of solid perfumes…but Deo bars?!?!?!?!
About Lush TEO Deodorant
T’eo bar is a tea tree deodorant for sweaty and active people. Stick it in a baggie and carry it around with you for regular top ups. Tea tree, lemon and juniper are excellent against bacterial invaders. The powdered sodium bicarbonate and magnesium carbonate absorb odours and excess perspiration. If you’ve been exercising, dab the bar under your arms for reinforcements.
My experience with Lush TEO Deodorant
- Packaging – As visible, this deo comes in a bar form…It looks exactly like some exotic Lush soap with all creamy goodness…the catch?? Its NOT a soap!! Its A Deodorant!!! This comes in a plastic baggie and can be stored in a tin or a plastic bag as well. No need to worry about the oil being sucked out as in the case of the soaps.
- Price: INR510
- Color & Texture – This bar is basically just white colored solidified and fragranced baking soda on a waxy blue base. The texture is a bit coarse..It doesn’t melt and get soft and smooth with time either..It stays powdery and coarse although it isn’t rough or abrasive.
- Fragrance – The Deo bar smells strongly or lemon with a tinge of mint…Very very refreshing albeit a bit sharp.
Hmm…I have mixed feelings about this product…I’m actually quite lazy and using a bar and then ensuring that the powder isn’t all over the rest of me is a challenge. It isn’t crumbly and is quite firm but still the powder has a way of sprinkling itself all around.
I asked the SA about it and she suggested an alternative way of using this. She suggested crumbling the entire bar in a tin and keeping it in the bath (closed of course). Right after bathing, she advised to take a bit and use it in the under arm area or even on the soles of the feet where a lot of people complain of odour. This can be followed by rinsing this off within a minute. I crumbled a quarter of this and it does work well, but the smell doesn’t last as long. Without crumbling, this lasts about 5hrs and then it becomes quite faint. And when used crumbled it lasts about 3hrs before getting mild.
Overall, I would say, if you like experimenting and don’t mind the extra work, then this is a good buy. But if you’re lazy (like me) then even if you gave falls on this, move forward no matter how much your feet and heart tell you otherwise
